Sis­ter’s call for DNA test

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

THE SIS­TER of J Lloyd Sa­muel has said she will seek a court or­der al­low­ing her to pri­vately test DNA after a coroner found that re­mains from a car crash were the for­mer foot­baller’s.

The 37-year-old, who played in the Premier League, was killed when his Range Rover burst into flames after col­lid­ing with a four-tonne de­liv­ery ve­hi­cle last year, War­ring­ton Coroner’s Court heard.

The for­mer de­fender’s white car had strayed on to the wrong side of the road be­fore the crash and was then thrown into the air by the im­pact, the two-day in­quest was told.

Fire dam­age meant that his body was so badly dis­fig­ured that it could not be vis­i­bly iden­ti­fied.

It has been re­ported that the ex-foot­baller’s sis­ter, Les­lie-Ann Sa­muel, has claimed her sib­ling’s death was faked.

It was re­ported on Sun­day that she be­lieves her brother is still alive and that he was not at the wheel.
